In Memory of Peta Velthuizen nee Verkerk
October 4, 1931 – August 28, 2021
Our precious mother, Peta Velthuizen, passed away on Saturday evening, August 28, 2021, just four short months following the death of her beloved husband, Dirk Velthuizen.
Peta had a warm smile and a caring heart. She devoted her life to her family, home, and community near and far. We, her family, are proud of her work for Amnesty International, her countless hours of knitting for care packages, for her skills in sewing and gardening and her love for beauty. She and Dirk enjoyed camping, canoeing, hiking and playing TOK with friends.
Peta cherished her three sisters, who live in Holland. She is survived by two, Marrie and Bea, and will be overjoyed to be reunited in heaven with her sister Gerda.
Peta is survived by her children, Dirk, Geraldine, Bart, Andrea, Marlene, Tim and their partners, 15 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
